A Late-Night Bus Trip, Personal Agility and Me: How Powerful Questions Can Change a Life

There are moments in life when we feel overwhelmed, scared, or stuck in a dead-end situation. Some of that is due to external circumstances, some is self-inflicted.

But it doesn't have to be that way. We can get out of the quagmire to become who we really want to be. All starts with having the courage to acknowledge that we need to change.

My talk is about a true story: How I started my journey into Agility and Personal Agility, how I discovered about the force of powerful questions, and how what I discovered allowed me to help someone else. We have in ourselves everything we need to take our lives back into our hands. Sometimes we just need a helping hand!

How can we transform the way we look at things? Where do we start to change the aspects of our life we are not happy with? What questions help us discover what we really want for ourselves?

I will reference the powerful questions presented by the Coaches Training Institute. I'll give examples of powerful questions compared to closed questions, and I will show how different the outcome of the two types of questions may be.

I will discuss how powerful questions help us recognize our role in what happens to us, and help us change our attitude in how we respond to the events of life. By looking for answers to powerful questions, we begin to accept responsibility for our life, and that responsibility process is very empowering. I will use my story of a casual encounter with a stranger to show how, even if we can't always control the events in our life, we always have a choice of how we respond to them.
